Description

Dyslexia – the invisible disability that impacts 1:5 individuals!

It’s not just an issue of trying harder or paying attention.

You know the stories you hear from your clients – hours of studying just to forget it all on a test the following day, constant lack of ability to understand what they read, difficulty remembering lists or instructions beyond three, the overwhelming frustration of knowing what they want to say or do, but not being able to express it on paper or get the words out, socially withdrawn in attempt to hide their struggles.

In this seminar, you will have the opportunity to practice treatment ideas that will incorporate the use of client-centered everyday routines, games, technology, sensory and hands-on approaches to help your clients overcome the challenges of life with dyslexia.

Upon completion of this program, you will be able to immediately provide treatment to address your client’s:

  • Visual perceptual skills
  • Visual motor integration
  • Auditory and visual memory
  • Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension
  • Phonetic awareness and memory
  • Spelling and handwriting struggles

Turn everyday activities into successful treatment!
